Bwisit talaga. Para syang nagpapatawa, pahid pa ng pahid ng mata nya na wala naman bahid ng luha. Pasalamat na lang sya kasi the masa that he has deceived stands by him and he can hide behind their desperate dreams of a better life which they think his show (or him) can fulfill.
salamat ulit sa pagpaunlak mo sa mga urban poor sa seminar na binigay natin. nag enjoy din ako na makinig sa yo. kaso nung nakita ko tong mukha ni willie revillame, nawala ang enjoy ko hehehe. sa totoo lang maraming ordinaryong tao ang naaliw sa palabas nila, pero marami rin ang naiinis. ako, naranasan ko minsan na matawa dahil may nakakatawa at minsan naman biglang heavy drama, mapapaiyak ka naman lalo na pag tungkol sa hirap ng buhay ang topic…. haay.. eto na ba talaga ang level ng pang-aliw ng ating telebisyon? nauubos lang sa pagpapaikot ng bola at paulit-ulit na kantahan ang oras… ayun natapos din ang palabas.
totoo, bread and circus talaga. nililibang ang mga tao who, like jordan said, only desperately dream of a better life. yun na nga ang nakakainis eh. it’s bad enough na tinatake advantage ang masa in this way — game shows as panacea — tapos dadayain pa!! hay lord.
edwin, re seminar, sa uulitin ha! nag-enjoy din naman ako. 🙂
At thirty, I like that it still takes so very little to make me happy. I like taking long morning walks on a tree-lined street all by myself and watching old couples teach each other tai-chi. I like getting my fingers sticky with drippy drops of ice cream, and then licking them off afterwards. I like bursting into song in public places and will always be secretly in love with Bon Jovi. When I’m sad, I eat spam and watch Sound of Music and then I’m ok again. I like backrubs and Happy Meals and deep kisses and children’s books and white chocolate and salmon sashimi, not in any particular order and certainly not all at the same time (except maybe white chocolate and deep kisses ). I can laugh at myself and do so a lot — I like to think that means I stand on solid ground. I love long rickety bus trips and getting compliments for my cooking. I’m a lawyer who is irreverent towards the law, an activist who likes lacey underwear. I think life is too short to be wasted on perfunctory embraces and cowardice disguised as prudence. I like living and laughing and dreaming and dancing and hoping and forgetting and remembering.
I’m currently in Holland, doing my Masters. I came here in September of 2010, and will be home in December of 2011. I cook my own food now (but still can’t perfect scrambled eggs.)
